Motorola's ridiculously expensive Aura mobile phone

Let's have a toast; for Motorola's brilliant idea to make a come back into the tight competitive market of mobile phone, by releasing a very expensive handset: AURA. Is it very-very pricey? Well, unless you can toss around $1,999.99 for a mobile phone; then yeah it is.

What's so special about this so called 'The Return of Artistry™ and Unveils Timeless, Classically Designed Device' by Motorolla? Moto says in the official press release that AURA has these exquisite features to make up the hefty price tag:
  • 16 million colors and 300 dpi resolution on the unique, round liquid-crystal display
  • Grade 1, 62-carat sapphire crystal lens
  • Stainless steel housing
  • Swiss-made main bearing
  • The gears composed of Rockwell 50-55 hardened steel and 130 precision ball bearings
  • The gear coatings is the same one used in high-performance racing engines
  • CrystalTalk™ technology
  • 2-megapixel camera
  • Quad-band GSM
  • micro-USB
  • Bluetooth
  • microSD slot
  • 4.97 ounce weight
  • 7.3 hours talk time

Looks like James Bond got a new mobile phone to choose from when he gets back to Q lab... ;-) I think it's time for the 007 agent to ditch that old looking Sony Ericsson handsets he's been using all these time, don't you think?
